Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit won't install on my Optiplex 755
Posted on 2011-02-14
I have this problem that is driving me crazy! I have been trying to install Windows 7 Pro 64bit on a Dell Optiplex 755 with no luck . It keeps erroring out when Windows is loading the setup files. I get an error message indicating that it cannot copy the necessary files to continue but the error doesn't indicate what files. The only thing I get is that the file may be missing or corrupt with the following error code: 0x80070570.
I have spoke to Dell and they keep insisting that it is the media that I am using. I have been using 3 different OEM disks from Dell. They have all worked on other machines that are identical to this one. I can't even seem to install WinXP or Vista on the machine. So I am thinking it is a hardware driver issue or some kind of configuration issue within the BIOS but Dell just seems to not know how to get this installed or they just don't want to help since the machine came with Vista and was dowgraded to XP.
Here is a breakdown of the machine:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 @ 3.00 GHz
RAM: 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM
SATA Operation: AHCI
250 GB Western Digital Hard Drive
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
